The Thing Go Skrrr-Ya! Greek League Suspended After Club’s President Storms Pitch With A Gun!

So you think you saw it all at the Olympic Stadium in the game between West Ham and Burnley? Wait a minute.

The Greek Super League has been indefinitely suspended after PAOK Salonika’s president invaded the pitch with a gun during a match on Sunday.

Ivan Savvidis tried to confront the referee with a gun in a hip holster after his side had a late goal ruled out for offside against AEK Athens.

AEK’s players left the pitch concerned for their safety and did not return.

The match was officially abandoned two hours later and local police are seeking Savvidis to arrest him.

Deputy sports minister Giorgos Vasiliadis announced the abandonment of all top-flight matches on Monday after a meeting with prime minister Alexis Tsipras.

“It won’t start again unless there is a clear framework, agreed by all, to move forward with conditions and rules,” he added.

Vasiliadis told BBC Sport the scenes had returned the sport to problems of the past.

“Such extreme phenomena demand courageous decisions,” a statement continued.

World football governing body Fifa and European chiefs Uefa both condemned the incident but said any disciplinary measures “fall under the jurisdiction of the Greek FA”.
